Published: June 30, 2011

Community members can discover why people have been enchanted by the art of origami—Japanese paper folding—for centuries as CSULB’s Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden hosts the annual Origami Festival on Sunday, July 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Guests will have hands-on experience creating a three dimensional object from a single sheet of paper. More than 40 experts from local and national origami clubs will teach a variety of different folds for people of all experience levels including animals, geometric forms and moveable origami. Japanese tea and treats will be served.

Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for Japanese Garden members and $3 for garden members’ children 12 and under, and $5 for general admission children. Prices include origami paper. Free parking is available in campus Lot 16 across from the garden.
